APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If you run the  BPMDeleteSnapshot command, orphaned tasks are
    created if tasks that refer to the snapshot being deleted belong
    to BPD instances that refer to another snapshot as well.  It
    appears as if entries in the corresponding LSW_TASK table
    remain, although they refer  to a deleted snapshot. When process
    instances are migrated to a new snapshot, tasks that no longer
    appear in the new process model are not migrated to the new
    snapshot and continue to refer to the old snapshot.

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available for IBM BPM that introduces enhanced
    consistency checks and returns the following error message to
    prevent the BPMDeleteSnapshot command from deleting the snapshot
    that tasks refer to when those tasks have process instances that
    have been migrated to another snapshot.
